I’ve got Prince pre-ordered but I’m seriously thinking of cancelling. What I’ve heard of so far it sounds like something I admire rather than listen to again and again – if that makes sense?


So a generous 10 Prince demos from a vault of how much unreleased music? At this rate we’ll have Prince music well into the new millennium!

The Terry Callier is not coming out ‘til October.

I’m looking forward to the new Suede album this week. I dearly love that band. Since ’92. It’s Interesting how all of a sudden the previous two albums ‘Bloodsports’ and ‘Night Thoughts’ are now considered to be part of a triptych of albums. If ever that was the plan, it has never been mentioned publicly. The only thing I can deduce from such a statement is… I don’t know.


The only thing I can deduce from it is that this may be their last album. Let’s hope not.


Is that a genuine photo of Prince looking into a mirror? It’s very Bowie – Nothing Has Changed-esque. The hair of the person looking into the mirror doesn’t seem to match Prince’s hair in the mirror, but it’s hard to tell.


Just pre-ordered the MC5 set from Amazon UK. Appears to be the cheapest price around. Sounds like an excellent set. Look forward to this one!!


A very minor point but clicking on the “more” button on the home page takes you halfway down the post whereas it normally takes you to the point in the post directly after the copy that appears on the home page. Same thing happened last week IIRC but don’t remember it happening before. No biggie but just thought I’d mention it.


This happens to me every time I click on “more” for a page. I’ll add my two cents since it’s been brought up. Thought it might just be me. It’s certainly not something I can’t deal with, but it is frustrating having to scroll back to the top of the page every time. That being said, I will be here every day regardless and am sitting across the room from stacks of music I’m loving thanks to you. LOVE love love this site, Paul!! Keep up the amazing work!

Wish the MC5 was out on CD, but I suppose I’ll have to keep up my old CDs for now.

Phil Wilson

Johnny Hates Jazz has been put back a couple of weeks, now out on 5th October. Cited manufacturing issues but I am guessing to add on the missing track that Clark said he’d get done?
